Thank you so much! qvq/


An interesting game. Had fun testing it.

Thank you so much for playing! qvq/


This is an amazing game! I played the game on my youtube channel and absolutely loved It!(a link to the video: https://youtu.be/kUrtnSgzelc(Warning: possible swearwords)) My only problem with the game was that the story was rather short, but I still really enjoyed it. I’d love to see more from you! (Sorry if my english was bad...)


Thank you so much! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the game overall! 

I do agree that the game is on the short side, but this was also because the game was made in only a month for the Indie Game Making Contest.

And please don't be sorry for your English, you did a wonderful job!

This game was very charming. Great graphics.

This was pretty fun! There were certainly things that could have been pulled off a bit better, such as how the visuals felt very incoherent (the quality of the art was way above the quality of tiles and sprites) and that it could be polished a bit better, but the story had a great set up. I would honestly love to see this one win and be extended in the future. I'd also love to see more exchanges between Ian and Adrian. As it stands, it's a bit weird that they seem to care so much for each other despite knowing each other for like 20 minutes. In summary, great setting and lots of potential, but as it stands it's just good, and it could be amazing.

ÓvÒ/ Thank you so much for playing Frogge, I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

;v; And thank you so much for your ideas. I would have like to put in more exchanges between the two of them but I only had so much time with the deadline. I did want to want the game longer but I had to cut ideas and other things short to make sure that I could have the complete story in the game.  I do really appreciate everything that you have mentioned though.

ÓvÒ/ Thank you again and I hope that you have a nice day.

Heya! I'm adoring this game, the aesthetics are lovely, but I think I've come across a some kind of glitch? There's no way I could find to move past the Piston Room, because the box is blocking the way.

ÓvÒ/ Hello!
There is actually an opening in the fence right next to the boxes that you are able to jump down to the floor below.
It's okay if you couldn't find it though, I'll try to make it more noticeable. I'm sorry for the confusion.

Oh, now I see it!! Thank you for the help! :D

qvq/ You're welcome! If I can do anything else for you at all, please let me know!

Man I love your games a lot. First I discovered Immortal, then your demo Mare and At The Sea's End. And now this cute little game. All the characters are charming and well drawn. I'm looking forward to more of your work ^_^!

qvq Thank you so much! I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed it so much and that you have enjoyed the other games that I have made and worked on. I hope that you have a wonderful day!
